Type International deleted my account and...

...accused me of "badmouthing" them. They didn't send my two December checks (supposed to be sent together with other members' that arrived on the 21st) a total of $368. I still have over $100 check scheduled for payment Feb 1st 2007, but wala na rin yon...

I sent an email to the admin asking politely for a reason but I didn't get any reply. I then forwarded the same message almost every two days to all of them - admin, Kym, typist center and customer service - until the first few days of January. CS replied on the 30th Dec that she has nothing to do with pays, everybody's on xmas vacation, and I have to email admin@typeinternational.com, which I had been doing of course. On the 8th, Kym replied and said "I have emailed Robert again to see where they are", referring to my December checks. But I waited in vain as there was never an email from Kym after that. On the 24th I inquired about my status as my commissions page was blanked out and I could no longer log in to my stats center starting the 14th.

And this is the reply:http://tinyurl.com/3d6yqv

Wow! Yun lng naman pala and it took them over a month to decide to tell me that. I asked for a justification about my "transgression" but I never heard from them till now. TI won't give the details, and they could not justify my termination.

Which is unjust and unfair...

My commissions page as you can see below is simply blanked, no message whatsoever about my badmouthing them, which is WEIRD. When a member gets terminated, nakalagay sa comms page yung reason kung bakit. But sa akin, wala...http://tinyurl.com/33xgn3

What are they afraid so much of? That people will see they deleted my account for "badmouthing" them? Is it because I scratched an ugly, foul-smelling wound in there?

When TI started to implement monthly fees for basic and marketing typists sometime in November, I stopped promoting the opportunity because I have lost confidence in them. Instead, I concentrated on doing and completing all assignments within the month. (In short, I became more of a liability than an asset. I was earning a minimum of $250 per month, matiyaga kasi ako gumawa ng assignments eh )

At the back of my head, I said, everything's not looking good. The implementation of so many additional fees does not sit well with me, no matter the reason. One reason they gave was that an additional staff would be employed starting 2007 for the faster processing of assignments and pays. Why should that be a member's expense?

The current changes made me rethink my position about TI.

I expressed my opinions on a forum, shared my thoughts with some members...

..then, bang! I got terminated.

I am not posting this to get even with TI. Far from it. I am just a member, and there's not much I could do about it. It is never my intention also to be a "self-confessed savior" (wish ko lang...to be a savior, that is ) But I could not just keep silent. TI could terminate members for any reason, and if this happened to me, it could happen to anybody also...not unless you're much of an asset than a liability, and you keep on sending new members each month..

Lately ko lng din napag-isip-isip, for months that i had been posting their ads, i have yet to be contacted with someone answering for the ads..which made me think TI's revenues come from members' fees..

I may be wrong...but then again, I may be right.

thanks for the advise and the comments about TI...kasi I was really very eager to register and work for them coz i thought that would really help me solve my financial problems...but then again, when i read about this blog, i think registering would be a not-so-good idea afterall...thanks for the warning once again...kaya cguro d ako pinayagan ni LORD na maka-register kasi my mga anomalies whatsoever...PEACE!Ü
